World Happiness Report Partners & Business Community
How can business community contribute to design a more sustainable world? On the occasion of the Earth Day 2020, the UN Sustainable Development Solution Network organized a 24-hours webinars about happiness and sustainability around the world. In the session “World Happiness Report Partners & Business Community”, hosted by Prof. Jeffrey Sachs (UN SDSN), Davide Bollati (Davines) – one of the World Happiness Report’s partner, leader of the B Corp movement and founder of Regeneration 2030 - and Eric Ezechieli, co-founder of Nativa and Regeneration 2030, discussed the role of businesses in shaping a sustainable economy, and the responsibility they have towards their consumers. Together with Paul Polman - co-founder of Imagine and Jan-Emmanuel De Neve - co-editor of the World Happiness Report - they provided their perspectives on the evolving Covid-19 pandemic and its implication on businesses and examined recommendations on business readiness, efficacy, and sustainability to pave the way forward.

Unlock Regeneration 2030 @ TIME to B
THe Italian B Corp Summit
The Italian B Corp Summit is a virtual event organized by Nativa and B Corp Italy - partners and founders of Regeneration 2030 - where more than 50 experts, scholars, business and managers have the chance to share their ideas on topics related to sustainability and the B Corp movement. Certified B Corps are businesses that have chosen a more evolved business paradigm going beyond profit to maximize their positive impact on people, planet, and communities. This year’s Summit was also the occasion to launch the “Unlock the Change” campaign, which has a double goal: to ask companies and institutions to shift to a more sustainable economic system and to involve consumers in playing an active role towards this transition.
We had the chance to present our initiative during the Unlock Regeneration 2030 breakout session, through the words of our founders Davide Bollati (Davines), Raimondo Orsini (Fondazione per lo sviluppo Sostenibile) and Oscar di Montigny (Banca Mediolanum), moderated by Sarah Marder (Wise Places).
